You may have guessed by the name of our company that gorillas are very near and dear to our heart, and you'd be right. For those who are wondering how on earth messenger bags have anything to do with gorillas, let us explain. We here at Gorilla Sacks make bags out of recycled billboard vinyl, which saves the billboards from going into landfills, thus reducing waste and creating more land for our furry friends. We like to think we come to work each day not only to make great recycled products, but also to do our small part to save the gorillas' habitat from destruction.
In keeping with Gorilla Sacks fashion, we have partnered with the Ape Conservation Effort (ACE), an organization that is entirely dedicated to the conservation of great apes. Naturally, we were thrilled when ACE asked if we would participate in Apes in the Arts (Thursday, July 12), an event to raise the funds needed to preserve ape habitats. This year our Gorilla Sacks bags will be in the silent auction, among artwork done by gorillas themselves. Yep, you heard us right!
